You can even compare photographs of the same subject with anotherphotographer and discuss the differences.Take your photos as quickly. The ideal moment to capture an image usually doesnt last forlong, so make sure youre always prepared to shoot. Wildlife may hide, people blink or tire ofsmiling, or any number of other things have the potential to spoil a shot. Dont worry aboutcorrectly using every setting on the camera or you could lose your shot.When taking a photograph with your cell phone you must be even more careful about thelighting you use. Cell phone cameras generally lack a flash. Therefore, youll need tocompose your shot to take advantage of the available lighting. If you use the zoom featureand go in close to your subject, you will block some of the shadows and sunspots, which willincrease the quality of your photo.Never throw away any shots you think arent good enough. When you create a scrapbook ofyour "missed shots," it can help you to improve your photography skills.Keep your subject in focus when you want to take great pictures. For photos that convey yourpersonal style and make effective use of composition, keep the camera focused. Until yougain some expertise, stick with centering your subject in full view.

It is not necessary to match colors, butyou should pick shades that look good together. Recommend warm colors or neutral shades,as they go well with natural surroundings. If you are considering a more festive, brightlycolored setting, advise the subjects to balance colored tops with black bottoms. This ensuresthat the various colors do not compete for the viewers attention.There is no easy way to photograph food. Food will melt, wither, and shift during thephotography session, ruining shots. When you are preparing to take a snapshot of food, taketime to organize the environment surrounding the subject first. Once the lighting is ready, youcan bring in the food and quickly capture the perfect shot.
